Query about play asia

I was just looking through play asia and saw that mlb 2k8 on the xbox 360 is pal compatible
http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-dw-49-en-15-mlb+2k8-70-2mfz.html

Which is VERY suprising - so is this 100 % correct and how much customs would i pay for importing it

Play-asia is hit and miss with customs, but with single items of software, most people are usually lucky.

However just in case you should be prepared to pay the following:

Take the price of goods + shipping.
Add duty (in this case 3.5%)
Then add 17.5% VAT onto that total.
You'll also possibly have a handling charge of £8 - £16.

Is the pal compatability correct thought or could it be wrong

I have no idea to be honest. Looking through some of their other NTSC-J 360 titles, some have a tick and some a question mark against PAL. Maybe you should write and ask?

Good advice, looking at some of the 2K Sports and Take Two Interactive games some of them are PAL friendly some are region free. Generally though play asia tend to be on the ball with the region codings though. I've only ever been hit with customs once and I've used them loads, it was my own fault for ordering more than one item though. Stick to single games and you should be ok, but can never guarantee

So its worth holding off atm until they get back to me

I once emailed them and said about being stung by customs and they offered me £5 off a game so its under £18 but i never ordered

so might try that again

Its worth hanging on to find out for sure if you have doubts, better than having a game you can't play?
#9
Ok I did a little searching about and it appears to have been confirmed on the 2K forums by their users
